Client: My First Piano. Project: "Antique French Provincial" My first piano for My First Piano! Lol. :) This piano was a mess when I got assigned to it. It had been painted with black board paint and was covered in bad music realated chalk art. I stripped it, sanded it, primed it, used a two part crackle coat, then aged it, and gilded detail areas. One of my favorite pieces still to this day.
This piano is a huge part of Pianoforte Music History, being that this piano was used by many famous pianists from the Romatic period, people such as Liszt, Chopin, Pixis, Thalberg, Czerny and Herz! The piano was hand chosen by Liszt to be given as a present to the famous Princess Christina Belgiojoso for the use in her famous Salon in Paris.

This was one of my favorite pianos I did for My First Piano. It took three layers of fire engine red spray paint to get perfecty even (A lot of work.) I modeled it after Elton John's Red piano (which was a yamaha) and added a pearlescent, interference paint, stencil on the music deck. It was my favorite but was a little outside of the customer base's comfort zone. Alas.
